Good morning!  It’s Friday, and we’re less than two weeks away from my favorite holiday, Thanksgiving.  The above collage is on my Facebook page, and it shows some of my favorite things about that holiday:  Turkey, stuffing, wine, and pumpkin pie.

I will be celebrating with family and/or friends.  I have invitations to two events, and this year, I’m going with the friends’ invite.  Not that I’m dissing family, but I like to change things up, and some of my favorite holidays have been celebrated with a group of assorted cohorts in this friend’s home.  We met in 1972, and over the years we have celebrated many holidays, from Thanksgiving to New Year’s Eve!


I will also join with family on the following weekend, as my #2 son will be driving through our city, as usual, to gather around a table in a neighborhood restaurant.  Here we were last year.


Today I found a photo I like of my daughter…and a special friend.


What are your holiday plans?  Family, friends, or both?



  1. Sounds like you have lots of fun events coming up with family, friends, and delicious food. Anticipation is part of the fun, isn’t it? We’ll be sharing Thanksgiving with our son, granddaughter, daughter-in-law, and daughter-in-law’s mother–a full table! We have so much to be thankful for.
    Speaking of which, thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment.

    1. Thanks for returning the visit, Sandy, and I am definitely loving the anticipation of Thanksgiving…followed by Christmas, of course, although the year’s end does remind me of what comes next: tax season. Sigh.

      Enjoy your week.


  2. The tradition is for family to celebrate Thanksgiving at my house and Christmas at my sister’s house. It works for everyone and this year will be no different. I love it all. Hope you have a fabulous time with friends and family.
